MY ETSY SHOP IS BACK UP AND RUNNING!

Hello my dear friends. I know, I know, I’ve been absent for a few days – I managed to get myself distracted with a few projects around the house, and more importantly….MY ETSY SHOP!

Yep, my shop is back up and running, and while I only have a few items listed at the moment, I’ll be adding much more throughout the week. In the meantime, take a peek around and let me know what you think!

TGIF – enjoy your weekend!

…UH, AND WHAT IS IT THAT YOU DO?

If you’ve been following my blog and the few meager posts I’ve made thus far, you may be wondering what the heck I actually do. Well, I often ask myself the same question! The short of it is this: I collect vintage items that make me smile; I style, refinish, and distress furniture pieces that simply need a little TLC; I create or recreate pieces that I would be proud to display in my own home (if only I had the space! I think a mansion would do just fine…); I’m a home decorator and events planner, and, well, I’m a jack of all trades attempting to take experiences and passions and roll them into one, perfect business.

Am I certified in any of these things? Absolutely not. I’m a newbie in this old world of vintage; I picked up furniture refinishing due to a little curiosity and a lot of frugality; I’m a freshman DIY’er, a self-taught home decorator, and an events planner by default due to 1) volunteering for the responsibility in my previous job(s), and 2) getting married and planning my own wedding, which I thought was pretty darn awesome (if I do say so myself…).

Perhaps I’m too confident in my potential, perhaps I have my head a little too far in the clouds and my feet a little too much off the ground, but…whatever. Thanks to my amazing and hard-working husband, I had the opportunity to move forward and take the risk, and I chose to take it. It would’ve been a crime not to, even though it continually scares the bejesus out of me!

So, I’m getting a custom logo created and business cards ordered shortly thereafter, all with little more than a dream to strive for – hoping that one day, this little venture could turn into some kind of career for me. Fingers and toes are crossed…

In the meantime, here are a few images of my work…
